The 25-year-old actress, who plays Elena on the flagship show The Vampire Diaries, is headed to Crescent City as a new character altogether.
EOnline reports that Nina will play Tatia, a Petrova doppelganger who was briefly mentioned in season three.
Appearing in a flashback on the November 4th ep, exec producer Julie Plec explained, “[Klaus and Elijah] both loved her, so it’s a little bit of history repeating itself like with Stefan and Damon. The character of Tatia is part of their history…it’s something we brought up a long time ago and never paid off.”
